For me it was cups. I have about 10 at home and 15 in work though only ever really use the 1, the others are actually locked in a safe that was never used so no one else can get their Gollum Gobs on them.

Another was lanyards whenever I went to Disneyland/Universal Studios/Harry Potter Studios all with pin badges etc. Main lanyard is my Hard Rock one with about 12-15 different pin badges from around the world during my past travels or if someone else picked me one up.

Kew Gardens?


Yeah but it's not in the best condition unfortunately.

I have most of the Peter Rabbit collection, two WWF animal ones, and even a supposedly rare neanderthal one pound coin.

If it's the pound coin i think it is, (a gibraltar one with a skull on it), then i'm pretty sure i have one of those.

As for the Beatrix Potters, i have a complete 2016 set, a complete 2017 set, the 2018 flopsy bunny, and both the '17 & '18 silver proof colour sets.

Never had a Kew though, and that has always been a pity, doesn't really matter how good the condition is, a kew's a kew and so is worth a fair packet.

Annoying that i had the Kew 50p but spent it :fp:
I have a fair few on the edition 50p coins from the last few years and the 2012 Olympic complete pack (nearly twice) in it's folder aswell.

Also a B for the 10p editions coins have only seen a G and that's it for these.

The 10p's are an absolute pain to track down, the only ones i've had in my change was when i visited the royal mint experience near Cardiff (got a G, N, and V from there).

I do have a complete set and the album to keep them in though, as it was given to me as a birthday present.

I've only got the O 10p coin out of those, I haven't found any others.

As for 50ps, at the minute I have 2 sets of the 2017 beatrix potter set, one set of the 2016 set, 3 paddington bears, a WWF one, an NHS one, the scouts one, Benjamin Britten, the tailor of gloucester and the 1918 war rememberance coin.

Didn't know 10 pences with letters on were a thing. I've got a 50p with WWF on it; I think that's a rare one.

Anyway, I've mostly got too many games, comics, and magazines.

Yep, there just isn't very many in circulation yet.

Here's my alphabet album (filmed upon arrival from the mint store)...

:lol:

I collect comics and stuff. Stuff not pictured: Pokemans cards, WoW CE's (vanilla WoW and TBC expansion), extensive collection of Strangers in Paradise comics and merch, complete collection of Planetary :wub: (it's a series about an organisation which makes amazing discoveries open and available for the betterment of mankind. They go up against a sort of What If...? the Fantastic Four were complete gooseberry fools? It's great.), individually signed editions of His Dark Materials trilogy of books. Too much stuff. Stuff below is what I could get my hands on right now.

Complete collection of Warrior magazine. (1st volume pictured off screen)
Image

First 3 issues of Preacher, signed by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon (RIP in peace)
Image

Hitman No1, signed by Garth Ennis
Image

Joe Madureira's first published art
Image

Darkness No1, dark variant. I also have a signed version.
Loved the first 10 issues of this when I was younger. (Written by Garth Ennis.)
Image

My only Stan Lee signed edition.
I wish it was something better but it'll most definitely do for now.
Image

Complete collection of V for Vendetta. Would love to get these signed.
Image

Various vg guides and books
Image

My RichardUK moment.
(24k gold ones were about £70 each, the one in the middle was around £40)

That's well cool! I never really made it to that many conventions or signings, but did manage to get Hellblazer signed by Jamie Delano and the Books of Magic mini series signed by Neil Gaiman (think he signed Black Orchid for me too). I only met Garth Ennis once but it was before Preacher came out :(

You met him before he got big? That's cool. There was a period where everything he wrote was amazing. (For those who may not be aware: he was writing a lot. Must have been on... 3 or 4 regular books.) Yet for some reason I never read his Hellblazer. :? (Some of which was written during that time.)

I recently started collecting Mattel’s line of retro WWE action figures. They are made in the style of Hasbro’s original line from years back. I always wanted some of those Hasbro figures when I was a kid but never owned any.

I said for years that if a new version was released I’d buy them, then my brother bought me the Mankind figure for Christmas last year and that started me collecting them.

It’s not a huge collection right now only 9, I have all or series 2 and most of series 3. I really wanna get more particularly series 1 but some from that series go for silly money now and I don’t believe they have any official UK stockists so they can be hard to find without going online.

:) Heh. Ta. I'll take proper pictures of Warrior issues when I get a chance. (They're in VF-VG condition, so, not the best, but I got 'em on the cheap and only one other person bid on them. Bizarre.)

This reminds me of how much I wanted a original Soundwave. And how utterly disappointed I was between how I remembered it and reality :lol: It was a boxy pos. How I remembered it was akin to the Masterpiece version. I'm glad you didn't have the same disappointment with the Mattel WWE reissues, Salad.
